Generally trommel fines are produced as part of the recycling process and consist of materials such as wood, aggregate, sand, glass and organics.
The fibrous nature of these fines often makes them difficult to separate and recycle so. they have traditionally been sent to landfill but this only deters the problem rather than solving it.
The fines product from dry processing through systems, like trommels, command the higher rate of non-hazardous tax but many operators in the waste industry are starting to realise the potential for trommel waste in the market.
Trommel fines are residues from skip waste which cannot be treated effectively in a dry process and therefore were previously sent to landfill, which imposes landfill tax on businesses.
Sending trommel fines to landfill not only results in a considerable cost for waste operators but also does not align to the Government’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and drive to create a circular economy.
CDEnviro’s recycling solution accepts and processes not only trommel fines but also road sweepings and gully waste.
Through extensive research and process trials on a range of customer sites, our trommel fines recycling solution removes contamination from sand, grit and stone, liberating unwanted lightweight matter. Furthermore , tertiary water treatment can remove heavy metal and hydrocarbon comntamination from waste water
We can help waste collectors to recycle their man made trommel fines to reduce the landfill disposal costs. We recognise that waste generators must be dissuaded from generating waste and we understand and support the EA’s decision to clarify their position.
The recycling solution produced for trommel waste incorporates some of the latest wet processing technology in the industry such as the HYDRO:GRADE, G:MAX, and the patented CO:FLO. The turnkey solution can accept up to 30 tonnes per hour of trommel fines waste that can be washed and sorted in order to recover as many valuable resources as possible.
Our recycling solution can divert up to 70% of trommel fines from landfill. By washing the inert materials to remove contamination, clean sand and aggregates extracted from the trommel fines waste can be resold and reused in the secondary aggregates market to close the loop on waste.
Extracting as many resources as possible from the trommel fines waste, businesses can save on huge landfill disposal costs and generate additional revenue from the aggregates produced.
